The Importance of Sympathy Flowers

Post 167 of 547

The death of a family member or close friend is one of life’s most painful events.  Those who are in mourning need support, and most of us want to find a way to send comfort and show respect.  One of the most appropriate and appreciated ways to express sympathy and compassion is by sending flowers.

Occasionally, the obituary includes the phrase “in lieu of flowers”.  Often, this term is used to encourage charitable gifts but not necessarily to discourage other expressions of sympathy.  Most families sincerely appreciate all the personal expressions that flowers and plants represent.  It’s important that each giver makes their own choice and many people choose to send a floral remembrance to the service or family home as well as a donation to the charity indicated.  While donating to a charity is a worthy tribute, there is really no substitute for beautiful flowers at a sympathy service.  They comfort the living and commemorate the lives of the deceased.

For all your sympathy tributes, please call or stop by Waukesha Floral & Greenhouse.

The beautiful stained glass cross can be added to your floral tribute or sent to the funeral as it is. We have both blue and amber colored glass.
